Haiku in the Park

Sitting in the park
feeling gentle breezes blow
on a sunny day

Grass beneath my feet
cushions every step I take
as I stroll along

Flowers in a bed
brighten up the atmosphere
lovely to the eyes

In the distance, hear?
Birds are voicing their delight
in the springtime sun

Clouds are on the move
in the sky above my head
changing shapes again

Pleasant respite from
everyday’s incessant noise
makes me feel like new

Now I must go home
to resume my normal day—
that I’d left behind
